I shocked when I was in Iraqi Kurdistan region which is a secular part of iraq and its a very liberal place compare with other islamic countries, freedom is unlimited you could feel that you are not in east its almost like Europe! except only one point wich is homosexuality! Iraqi kurdistan region have a separate law and constitution which is most of the paragraph based on French and Scandinavian constitution with a little islamic liberal law but for the gay person still they use that paragraph of iraqi law against homosexual which is consider gay act as a crime and sickness and sentence them 2-4 years jail!!! I ask every one and ILGA to write a protest letter to the kurdish administration take away that craime and sickness in that paragraph against homosexual and freedom of homosexuality from 18 years of age ! there are some hidden gay organization in some cities but they need support from us ! if you care about others gay people in diffrent part of the world we appreciate if you write a protest letter to
